ed on facebook says people tend to remember things that are important to them or that they have experience with. i don't think you can label that as selective hearing. >> dawn says i've learned selective commenting. if i'm near the tvmputer i say e got to see this. thanks so much for responding. we appreciate it. "fox & friends" starts right now. bye. good morning. it's tuesday, december 3. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. if you signed up for obamacare, your moment may not be real. what insurance companies are saying this morning that has the white house scrambling. >> 82 in a 30. new details show how fast that train was going before it derailed. but why was the driver going that fast? and was he paying attention? that's the big question. >> drones delivering your packages in 30 minutes or less? why lawmakers may be putting a stop to amazon's plan before it even gets off the ground.
3:01am
"fox & friends" starts right now. >> it's "fox & friends." >> if at first you don't succeed, try, try, try until you get insurance. >> exactly. and then try again. >> because it might not work. >> good morning. peter james johnson in today for brian kilmeade. today is brian's anniversary and he's taking the day to spend it with his brian. >> brian's not secret six. his secret one today. >> happy anniversary, brian and wife. >> since you're joining us as brian, you get to start the show. >> there's new problems for the obamacare website. even if you get through the signup process, you may not actually be enrolled. peter doocy live in washington to explain the latest glitch. good morning, peter. tell us about this. >> reporter: pretty
3:02am
simple. about one-third of everyone who made it through healthcare.gov and thinks they are enrolled in coverage starting next month might not be. that's according to "the washington post" which lists today a variety of errors in forms that are caused by computer bugs, and that's really bad at this point in the game because insurance companies might not even know where to send a bill. >> can you imagine? you think you've signed up. you go to get coverage because you need health care. you go there and you find out that in fact you haven't been signed up. that is a huge issue because what does someone do at that point? >> the white house says 50,000 consumers should be able to simultaneously shop at healthcare.gov, but yesterday only 30,000 and change were able to access the site before a new digital queuing system kicked in basically telling folks to come back later. and then there was this, a
3:03am
screen of complete nonsense and question marks that popped up in the middle of the day after clicking apply now for coverage. the administration says they met their deadline for fixing the important parts of the site by the end of november. >> the president believes that the site has been significantly improved and that the teams in place have worked 24/7 for weeks now to make those improvements, including significant improvements that were made over the weekend. but the work is not done. >> we're going to hear from the president today during his speech at the white house. he's expected to talk about the benefits of the affordable care act that have already kicked in and about how important it is to help people without insurance sign up. back to you. >> peter, we thank you very much for the live report from our nation's capital. >> thank you. that's startling information. super glitches they're
3:04am
calling them. not enough information, your security info is just all over the place. now we're at a point where that clock is still ticking. how will the president spin this? what's going to happen next? insurance companies say they're not getting the right information. you are thinking at this point that euro insured. if -- that you're insured if you're one of the seven people that have been able to get on. if you think you're insured, you just might not. this is new information as we head into the beginning of december. startling. >> it is startling. they have spent $1 billion on this website. i read this morning that apparently somebody from the centers for medicare and medicaid services said after you sign up on-line, because you might not be actually signed up because you might not actually have an account with the insurer, call the insurer on the phone and say this is steve doocy out here in new york. do you have a record of me? as we just heard from peter doocy, only a third -- rather two-thirds are
3:05am
accurate and one-third are simply mirages. >> that seems to be good enough. they seem to be happy and smiling. >> it's kind of become oz where they say go cure yourself. you're on the website but go kao*ur -- cure yourself. take a number, we'll let you know whether you get the sticky bun or not. like a bakery. listen to this. >> what the administration says is we face the front of a tear-down. that's not going to do anything. the plumbing doesn't work. the back end is falling down. it might add to the curb appeal but it is not going to ultimately sell the house and nobody is going to want to live there. >> that is such a good analogy. yesterday ed carney was trying to get some answers from -- rather, ed henry -- suddenly i've put them together. >> they spend a lot of time
3:06am
together. >> ed was trying to get jay carney, people are signing on and getting all these error messages. that's not an error message. that's a new invention we've come up with where if there is a logjam, you're going to be in a queue where you will be told later by e-mail when is a safe time, an off-peak time to come and sign up. here's the problem. if so many people are pushed to off peak, let's say 3:00 a.m., suddenly 3:00 a.m. is the peak time. >> this ultimately comes down to trust. are the american people at this point, this is a website they're not able to trust. their security information is not secure. they're not assured that they have insurance. they are not sure that this administration is doing right by them, especially because the leader of the administration first told them that they could keep the plan that they had if they liked it. now they're trying to rebrand. let me tell you, kevin balls with megyn kelly said the president did. did he lie? she asked him, isn't this a
3:07am
lie to the american people? listen to his response. >> the president has acknowledged that that statement didn't clearly communicate what he wanted to communicate to the american people. >> was it a lie? that seems -- >> -- presenting an opportunity to enroll in stronger plans. i think that the president specifically addressed that and addressed that he misled people. and the administration is working every day to regain credibility. >> they're going to have to work a long time to regain. this is something that is disturbing. >> they're about to roll out a big p.r. campaign and tell the american people how wonderful this is, and are they going to address this today? but are they going to address this? listen to this now. what we hear today now is the federal government intends to subsidize insurance companies that canceled your millions of policies because of the president's promise that wasn't kept from the beginning. not only are they going to subsidize these companies at taxpayers' expense, they also say we may intend to share in the profits if
3:08am
there are profits. now they're going to take a profit participation in the, in what occurred as a lie. what does governor christie say about what the president needs to do today? >> what the president should do is to, you know, belly up to the bar and just tell the truth. the american people are fairly forgiving lot. if you got it wrong, you got it wrong. but what they don't like is when they think you're dodging it. and i think that's what the president looks like right now, is that he's dodging it. >> because the whole thing was sold on a fairy tale. if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. not true. if you like your health plan, you can keep your health plan. not true. he's going to bend the cost curve down. not true. he's going to cut the deficit in half. not true. remember it was about two weeks ago, three weeks ago where the white house said we're going to have this technical -- we're going to have a tech surge to fix this website. you know what? according to "the new york times," you know how many people were in the tech
3:09am
surge? >> how many? >> six. six people in the tech surge. it really was kind of a p.r. stunt. >> unfortunately it's on the backs. american people. they are 5% roughly, of the 7 million enrolled, they need to have 7 million enrolled to pay for this program, so why tell the truth when the lie will get them there? >> only 15%, they are still behind. >> we'll keep you posted on all that. in the meantime, good morning. heather nauert. >> peter, nice to see you. got news to bring you. we begin with a fox news alert. an update on that deadly train derailment in new york. investigators say that train was going 82 miles per hour in a 30 mile per hour zone, this happening early sunday morning. all seven cars jumped the tracks killing four people and injuring dozens of others. the engineer has told investigators that he tried to find the brakes but they did not work. the train's black box show the brakes were not fully
3:10am
engaged. in the meantime mourners remember the victims in a vigil last night. take a look. >> she came home, all my brothers came into my room, and said she's gone. >> that victim, james lovell was an audio technician who was headed to rockefeller center to work on the christmas tree. you heard from one of his sons. also killed was a nurse who cared for young children on the overnight shift and was heading home. kisook ahn. james ferrari and donna smith also killed. in the meantime, newly released video shows the moment the porsche paul weaker was riding in smashed into a tree before the accident. they say speed was a factor in that crash. walker's friend who was also driving was killed. rather who was driving was killed. a memorial held at the crash site outside los
3:11am
angeles and has nightwalker's costar sreupb diesel opened up by the love of his friend. >> i just want to say thank you. thank you for coming down here and showing that angel up in heaven how much you appreciate him. >> autopsies for walker and roadis are scheduled today. listen to how california lawmakers are starting the week, a 5.3% pay raise approved in june. it is the first one since the recession began. a lot of lawmakers are calling this raise ridiculous saying lawmakers do not deserve it. california has one of the highest tax rates in all the united states. how about that? it has been an annual christmas controversy in rhode island. for the past two years the so-called grinch governor, lincoln chafee outraging christians by referring to the tree at the statehouse
3:12am
as a holiday tree. now chafee is doing an about-face, finally calling it a christmas tree. in a letter the democratic governor says the past practice of calling it a holiday tree just generated too much anger. what do you think about that switch? those are your headlines at this hour. >> thank you very much, heather. every time we do a story about lincoln chafee, people write in, steve, you look a lot like him. i should go to rhode island with a christmas tree. >> you belong in the statehouse. >> we rhode islanders would not mind you coming to -- >> i bet. thank you very much for joining us on this awfully busy tuesday. a dozen minutes now after the top of the hour. the numbers are shocking. nearly 22 million people over the age of 18 still living with their parents. our next guest says the president's policies now turning america into the land of adult children. >> that's right. then his disgusting remarks about sarah palin sparked

3:17am
news editor of town hall.com and fox news contributor and has a great piece on this very subject. katie, good morning. >> good morning. >> has america become the land of man children in the land of obama? is that what we've become? >> we're definitely getting there. since 2009, the youth unemployment rate for young people 18 to say 35 has hovered around 16%. when you have that problem, you have more people living at home and more people depending on government programs. under barack obama, who we all know is a big government advocate, there is an interest in keeping young people dependent on their parents and dependent on big government because the last thing they want is for young people to go in the real world and realize how much things actually cost, how many taxes they're paying and what it takes to be independent. >> what is the interest, the specific interest they have in making sure that young people don't know what it's like in the real world, that are comforted and sheltered by the
3:18am
government dole, by dollars, by checks, by benefits? why are they doing that? is the democratic party interested in increasing its registration? >> its registration. we all know young people typically vote for democrats until they get out in the real world and start pulling a paycheck. obamacare is a perfect example of why the land of adult children is happening. for example, you have president obama going out and saying k stay on their parents' health insurance until they're 26. last time i checked, we weren't exactly kids or children at the age of 26. many people are homeowners. world war ii was won by people ages 18 to 26. by the time you're 18 you can sign up to fight overseas. by 21 you can drink alcohol. yet all of a sudden we're children able to stay on our parents' health insurance. that is not a good thing. that means we're delaying adulthood and overall a whole generation is now saying i don't know how much things cost. they're not responsible for their actions.
3:19am
>> there are so many young people who are the heart and soul of america doing incredible things in service to this country, in business, in industry, working every day, day in and day out. what is the net effect as we go out this morning of this interest by this administration in making children out of young men and young women? what is the net effect 20 years from now? >> as you mentioned, there are a lot of very young people in their 20's and early 30's doing great things so it's patronizing when you have democrats calling them kids and children. the impact is you have an entire generation that isn't going out and learning how to pay a credit card bill on time and learning finances. they are more ghent on government and -- they are more dependent on government and how much things actually cost. >> katie pavlich, town hall.com contributor.

3:25am
if they were to close commissaries, military grocery stores for military members of their families and retirees, they would be a casualty of washington's unwillingness to constrain spending. they have already chopped the d.o.d. budget through sequestration. now d.o.d. is trying to figure out how to live within their means. we see proposals like getting rid of commissaries and it's really a reflection of if you can't make tough decisions about big-ticket items then it rolls downhill. we're talking about troops, pay and benefits. and something like commissaries, while expensive in some ways is not going to get to the budget fixes d.o.d. needs. it's going to hurt the little guy, the private or the military members serving overseas who doesn't have access to the kind of cheap groceries they would want. >> just from a layperson's perspective, you would say why is the target of this cut back going to be those in the families that actually give and serve to protect?
3:26am
it doesn't make sense. i think shoppers can save more than 30% on their purchases at the commissary as opposed to shopping somewhere else. why hit them hard there? >> why the target? because that private in the field doesn't have a constituency in washington, a lobbyist there to protect their programs. but you do with big-text weapons systems, with contractors, with high-ranking officials. different things within the defense department are usually cordoned off in situations like this. it is easy to chop the number of troops, easy to chop benefits. the one upside here is the pentagon is finally talking about long-term cost savings. they haven't had to. we're in a new environment. $17 trillion in debt. we've got to be more smart about how we spend pentagon dollars. but looking to commissaries as a place to start is the wrong place to start. let's look at everything but let's look at auditing the pentagon, finding the fat within the budget. let's look at the way we acquire weapons systems. there's billions in overruns and decades in delays in weapons systems.
3:27am
let's look at that before we look at military benefits and pay. >> i'm reading a third of the employees at these commissaries are military spouses. 30%. >> yes. >> that's another level of hits. >> these are community centers in many ways. the commissaries, the p.x.'s are the places where military families shop for a lot of different goods, where families work. if you're a private who doesn't have a car, you may not have access to go off base. if you're overseas in germany or south korea, the commissaries are places where you can get the food and items you couldn't get in markets outside the base. they in many ways become a community center and if you target them as a place to find cost savings you're getting at the baseline of the basic benefits that are given to service members who signed on the dotted line to defend this nation and when our nation was irresponsible and spent more than than we have you're not going to balance your book on the military families. let's find big ticket items to be smart to reform.
3:28am
there are some efforts on the hill to do just that that groups need to get behind. >> we will keep our eyes peeled for that. pete hegseth, thanks for the passion and purpose there. coming up, his disgusting remarks about sarah palin sparked outrage everywhere except to his bosses, but now martin bashir is missing from his newscast chair. why? then drones delivering your packages in 30 minutes or less? why lawmakers may be putting a stop to amazon's plan before it gets off the ground. ♪ ♪ as a business owner, i'm constantly putting out fires. so i deserve a small business credit card with amazing rewards. with the spark cascard from capital one, i get 2% cash back on ery purchase, every day. i break my back around here. finally soone's recognizing me with unlimited rewards!

3:31am
this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, like celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions or stomach and intestine problems such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. don't take celebrex if you have bleeding in the stomach or intestine, or had an asthma attack, hives, other allergies to aspirin, nsaids or sulfonamides. get help right away if you have swelling of the face or throat, or trouble breathing. tell your doctor your medical history. and find an arthritis treatment for you. visit celebrex.com and ask your doctor about celebrex. for a body in motion.

some quick headlines for you now. caught on camera, a jeep carrying four thieves crashes into a clothing store in dearborn, michigan. the four men get out and grab expensive jackets before taking off. they are still on the loose. an animal rights group filing an unusual legal action. trying to free a chimp that has been kept as a pet by a couple in new york. the lawsuit demands tommy the chimp be deemed a legal person so he can be moved to an animal sanctuary that is more like his natural habitat. now his natural habitat, steve doocy. >> is he a legal person? we'll have to talk with the
3:44am
judge about that someday. a kansas seventh grader banned from handing out event fliers at school because her fliers contain some bible verses. meanwhile the school is fine with posters about dead rappers and drugs, but not a flier that includes a bible verse. now she's fighting back because religious speech protected by the constitution. here to weigh in judge andrew napolitano. she was handing out these fliers. she wanted fellow students -- and not a lot. she handed them out apparently quite sparingly. she wanted them to join her at the flagpole for a prayer before school. >> i do not think this case is a close call. i think the school is so obviously wrong and misguided here in its efforts to maintain order by suppressing the freedom of religion. first of all, students theoretically have the same constitutional rights as the rest of us. that includes the freedom
3:45am
of speech and the free exercise of religion. this girl's not trying to have somebody celebrate mass in the hallway of the school. she's simply passing out literature saying if you'd like to talk about jesus or if you'd like to talk about the bible i'm happy to meet with you at another time and at another place. schools can restrain speech if the speech is disruptive. but when the speech is not disruptive and when it's especially protected in the constitution, like speech about religion or speech about nonreligion, they cannot interfere. >> here's the problem. the school has got a policy, and we got a statement from the school, quote, the distribution of any religious material is prohibited on school ground or in any attendance facility before, during or after the school day or school activity. so you say they've got that rule but that doesn't fly? >> that rule is unconstitutional unless they can show that the mere distribution of this lit literature -- literature
3:46am
interferes with the mission of the school. schools have a lot of authority to control the behavior of students. they can control the behavior of students off of school grounds and after the end of the school day if that behavior could arguably affect something that subsequently could happen on school grounds and during the school day. >> that is in the interest of safety? >> and also in the interest of the fact that they have a mission. that mission is an educational product for which the taxpayers paid and students can't interfere with that mission. but where the school is not able to show interference the default position is the freedom of speech. the default position is the freedom of religion and this school board has not been able to show any interference with the delivery of the school's mission by this young woman passing out this literature. >> here's the problem with the school's statement. if they say you can't pass anything out because of a safety issue, why are they okay with posters glorifying dead rappers and drugs and alcohol?
3:47am
>> that probably gets into the political aspect of this. again, i don't know the motivation -- >> if you're talking about safety, drugs and alcohol not necessarily safe. >> i don't know the motivation. i certainly don't know what's in the hearts of the people who wrote this regulation. but it's hard to believe that they would have a regulation that would permit you to distribute literature about dead rappers but not distribute literature about jesus christ. >> here's a statement from this seventh grader, by the way, now has an attorney fighting on her behalf. the attorney says students do not shed their constitutional rights at the schoolhouse gate. nondisruptive private student expression is protected by the first amendment. that person sounds just like you. >> that is a nearly -- i'm not going to take credit for it. i didn't write it. that is a nearly perfect description of student rights with respect to public schools today in the united states of america from and after the most recent time the supreme court looked at this which is about three years ago. >> so what should happen here? >> a judge should enjoin the enforcement of that rule or the school --
3:48am
>> what does that mean? >> that means she will file a complaint before a judge. the lawyer will file a complaint and the judge will prevent the school board from enforcing the rule and she will be free to distribute the literature. or the best thing that is going to happen, the school board admit they made a mistake. >> maybe they could do it the day before christmas. >> too late. now is the time period when you want to be able to exercise that free exercise of religion. >> interesting stuff. judge, meanwhile, elisabeth was telling us about the story of the people who want to reclassify their chimp as a person. is that possible? >> no. it is possible the chimp could have certain rights but not as a person. >> that's good to know. thank you, judge andrew napolitano. 11 1/2 minutes before the top of the hour. straight ahead, women have been claiming it for years. their man simply is not listening to them. now the science says they're right. and is it a headache or a

welcome back. nearly $750 billion is wasted on unnecessary medical services in the u.s. >> when it comes to common health problems, how do you know when to visit the doctor or not and when it's a waste of money or worth your time?
3:53am
dr. david samati is here to tell us exactly that. good morning. >> good morning. >> so let's go through some of the symptoms. there are a lot of things people experience often. cough. you have a chronic cough. is that a big issue? >> chronic cough, the definition is actually having it over two to three weeks. 90% of these are really nothing important. post nasal drips. we want people to know that even reflux, if you have acid reflux can cause this irritation. cough is a great thing. it's defense mechanism that body has against all the irritants. you clear up all the phlegms, et cetera. if you have any phlegm, if you're a smoker, if you see any blood in the phlegm, that's a red flag for a doctor. that's when we start doing tests to see if there is anything else. for the most part, 90% of these are just a reaction to some of the irritants we have. you may need to sleep more, drink more and relax and it goes away. so nothing to panic. if you have fever or other symptoms, then we want to think
3:54am
about sinussites. in other things, we call it differential. it's like narrowing down. don't panic. lung cancer is only 2% of the diagnosis. >> all of us get headaches and sometimes we get them more frequently than you want. how do we know when a headache is just a headache and it's going to go away or something more serious, perhaps like a brain tumor? >> this is a very good question 'cause so many people go to the emergency room and they're afraid of having a kind of tumor of the we want to know, is it something new? is it something that you just recently having it or had it in the past? is it getting worse? when during the day is it going to get worse? tension headache, which is 90% of these, are usually worse as the day goes by. you get more tired, you're tense. your muscles get tense and that's the kind of tension you have. brain tumor is usually a m the brain. there is no room. so when you move, if you cough, the headache is going to get much worse. it's the worst headache of your
3:55am
life. and also if you lose weight, if there are any other symptoms, you don't hear well, the mass in the brain could be pressing on the optic nerve. >> something is going on? >> something else is going on. >> you got to see a doctor, primary care or neurologist. >> don't ignore it. and they just give you some medication. if it continues to have other symptoms, go see your doctor. that's when we would be a red flag. >> what about if you're really, really thirsty, some people think maybe i'm dehydrated or could be diabetes? >> that's a very good point. with diabetes, you're going to lose sugar and a lot of water follows the sugar also. that's when you would get thirsty. in general, that symptom continues every night. so 90% of this thirst is dehydration. like myself, i don't have enough time wen courage people it drink seven glasses of water. i encourage people to drink coffee. it's one of these diuretics that you can lose. you're right, you want to make sure that you don't have diabetes. for us, by getting your urine

good morning. it's tuesday, december 3. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. fox news alert for you. 82 miles an hour and the speed limit was 30. that's how fast this commuter train was going when it derailed, leaving four people dead. is that a mechanical malfunction or is the driver to blame? think you're all set, signed up for obamacare? turns out your enrollment may not be real. another obamacare bombshell, but what is the white house doing about it? ladies, has this ever happened to you when you ask your husband for a favor? >> come on! really? what my baby wants, my baby gets. >> i wanted 12. baby wanted 12. >> this is like my home movie.
4:01am
it's the age-old debate, do men only hear what they want to? selective hearing. there is some science behind it. we're going to explain it all. "fox & friends" hour two for this tuesday starts right now. >> even if the web site isn't working, as smoothly as it should be for everybody. >> it's time for "fox & friends." >> selective hearing. we're going to talk about that in a minute. we got to update you on -- yesterday was cyber monday. millions of americans went on-line and went shopping. many tried the affordable care act web site and you know what? we were told the day before it was up and running and would work for a vast majority of people. it turns out it is not fixed. rather than getting error messages, what are you winding up with? you're put in a queue that says we're kind of busy now. come back later. plus this is new. according to the "washington post" today, apparently one third of the people who have signed up so far -- so we're
4:02am
talking about tens of thousands of people -- one third of them don't actually have policies with companies because there is a problem with the way it all works where the companies aren't getting their names or the names are wrong or they're not getting the payment. could affect many, many people. >> of course. it's arguably the busiest time of year. so you're making your list, checking it twice. you think you signed up for health insurance. you go to sign up for five more times because as you said, steve, you might not be signed up. the insurance companies might not have the right information to send you a bill when you think you signed up. so you're left sort of without any luck and senator ayotte said this is a huge problem. i agree. >> you go to sign am for health care and you find out that in fact you haven't been signed up. that is a huge issue because what does someone do at that point? how do they work their way through the bureaucracy to
4:03am
verify they've been signed up? so i see this as much of an issue as the access issue on the health care, the fact that has not been fixed is a huge problem. >> this is for millions. >> unless you have made your first month's policy, peter johnson, you're not signed up. >> you're not signed up. unless you paid for something, you think an insurance company is going to give you something without paying for it? they're saying they're not getting the information. they're not getting the social security information. they're not getting these 834 forms that have become part of the american lexicon now, quickly enough. we're days or weeks away for people. the other issue is security, safety, privacy. is the web site safe? is your personal information up for grabs? and is the administration really concerned about it and what have they done to solve it? representative mike rogers says that the president and secretary sebelius are married to a time
4:04am
line rather than put security first. let's watch him. >> i think they're married to this political timeline. i think they believe that their politics is hired in the success of the web site let alone the product once it gets work. i think that's a serious mistake. no business would do this. i think the president could get a lot of points here if he stopped, backed up and said, we're going to close this thing down until it's fully secure up to modern day industry standards. i think he could get some kudo points for this. instead, he's decided i'm mired to this thing and give god, we're going to do it no matter if people lose their personal information or not. that's wrong. >> okay. so in addition to the headline where a third of the people who have signed up, really signed up, that's a pretty big headline of the the other one is apparently the web site is not safe. congressman rogers is absolutely right. there is a big item on the drudge report right now that says that one of these white hat hackers, people who work for business to try to figure out the vulnerabilityies, he says
4:05am
absolutely no security was ever built into that web site. so that means when you try to sign on, for instance, he details when you visit the web site, it actually tries to hack your computer back. it can ickes tract your e-mail, address, using names, passwords, all that stuff. the web site is not safe. absolutely have to be crazy to use it even though the government says it's safe. >> or was that done intentionally? >> why would they do it intentionally? >> why do they need that information? is there some reason they need that particular information? >> they definitely need it just to gain more control and the ability to then charge everyone. but to link all those units together is what those white hackers were saying is the issue. when you have these areas of government and alt areas with your social w your income, with your doctor's records, your medical information, the most precious info on you is
4:06am
available across all these lines, the more lines that you have to cross, the more ability a hacker has to get in there and snag it. the fact that the government didn't put that in first really says a lot. the irony is this is supposed to be health care when really your life is not safe when you're putting all of your information out there. your well-being is at risk. >> we saw the web site is not fixed. our correspondent in washington tried and got pages of jibberish. meanwhile, a lot of people out there are -- just general people, friends come up to me when i'm raking leaves and stuff and -- because we talk a lot about the health care program on this program, they talk to me about that. but the president is getting an earful, too, from democrats. they're calling on him to actually start rolling some heads because it has been so problematic and people are looking and saying look, this is your suggest achievement, mr.
4:07am
president. why hasn't anybody been held accountable? when you think about it, anybody held accountable for benghazi? no. the nsa? no. the irs? no. in this case, is it different? robert gibbs, spokesperson for the president for a long time says it is time to can some people. >> this has been a totally unnecessary embarrassment. it's been an embarrassment for activist government in many ways. it will be inexplicable if somebody involved in the creation of the web site doesn't get fired, or a group of people don't get fired. >> somebody involved in the creation of the web site? this is a game, too. this is a scam. no one is going to get fired. someone involved in the creation of the web site. so it's going to be some poor guy in the silicon valley who didn't know what he was doing. what happened to the people leading the bus tour.
4:08am
but it's good politic. >> i saw a couple stories on this topic earlier today. some suggested dan pheiffer who right now is essentially the senior white house advisor. another guy, rob neighbors who said deputy chief of staff, they should be called on the carpet. but then again, what about valerie jarrett? >> the assistant to the assistant to the code writer. >> just to say they did. >> perhaps. >> the american people are smart. they know accountability means the most and they'll be looking for it. we're look over to heather nauert. >> hi. we begin with a fox news alert on that deadly train derailment in the new york area. the train's blacks box reveals that train was going 82 miles per hour in a 30 miles per hour zone around that very dangerous curve. this happening early sunday morning. all seven cars jumped the tracks, killing four people and injuring dozens of others. the engineer of that train, william rockefeller, said he
4:09am
tried to apply the brakes, but the brakes didn't work. the black box also showing that the brakes were not fully engaged. investigators are now trying to determine if rockefeller is to blame or if there was a mechanical problem. we'll keep watching that story, of course. mourners remembering the victims in a vigil at the crash site last night. take a listen. >> she took amazing care of the children and if you were to ask any of the staff or any of the families of the children who live here, they would say she always, always smiled. >> that was a friend of the nurse who cared for young children on the overnight shift and she was coming home to the city that morning from her job. also killed in the crash, james ferrari, donna smith and james lovel. newly released surveillance video showing the moments that that porsche that paul walker was ride not guilty crashed, killing the actor. take a look at this. police have ruled out drag racing, but say that speed was a factor in that crash.

4:17am
correct? >> that's correct. we actually went to the rule box and pulled out their set of rules and said hey, we want to create an ad that we think the nfl fans would resonate with and inside of their rule set and we scripted this ad. we wrote it and produced it and sent it in for approval and got a big no. >> you got a big no. the nfl guidelines -- we have it for everyone to look at. firearms, ammunition, other weapons are prohibited. however, stores that sell firearms and ammunition will be permitted, provided they sell other products. the ads do not mention firearms, ammunition or other weapons. you thought your store sells other products. correct? >> that's correct. we sell pocket knives and shirts and t-shirts and hats and jackets and lot of outdoor gear, as well as firearms. we felt like we were inside of
4:18am
the rule book and we did not mention guns or ammo in the ad as the rules ask. >> so at the ends of the ad, you see the image of i guess a rifle. is that correct? that's what god them. 'cause the ad doesn't show gun. a dad looking to protect his family. you offered to remove that image or not? >> we did. when we got a no, we went back to the fox affiliate and asked them if we could maybe the silhouette had something to do with it. we typically use that in our marketing as part of our will he he -- logo. if they felt that needed to be changed, we offered to put in an american flag or shall not be infringed. >> the nfl was still not happy with that or have you heard from the nfl? >> we heard back through our fox affiliate that, the commercial was a no go even with the change. if you're an nfl or super bowl fan and you want to see our ad on the super bowl, then call the nfl and tell them, come on, man!
4:19am
run my ad! >> the nfl is holding tight to their standards, it seems here. it's understandable, right, to some why that image would not be acceptable. certainly the nfl feels this way. frankly, isn't it better to have your ad talked about leading up to the super bowl? remember the tim tebow ad that got all the hype. it was almost better for their marketing. how do you feel about that? >> well, we're getting a lot of publicity about not being able to use this commercial during the super bowl. but our goal is to use the commercial to run it during the super bowl. we spent probably close to $100,000 to produce this commercial, to run it for the super bowl, to fit inside of their guidelines. i'm a football fan. i'm an nfl fan. i love football. i want to see our super bowl ad. so if you're an nfl fan, call the nfl and tell them, come on,

man! run my ad! >> let me ask you this, because you want them to call the nfl and say come on man, run this ad. why? what's the message you want people to come away with from this ad, because i know it means something to you. >> elisabeth, we believe that the average -- the majority of the super bowl fans have the same values that we have at daniel defense. that is we believe in forgetting our family -- protecting our families. we believe in our second amendment, which is the right to protect ourselves. we believe in the first amendment, which is really the issue here. we're trying to exercise our first amendment rights to give our opinion on the second amendment and not being allowed to do so. so if you love the first amendment, you love the second amendment and you want to protect your phone, then call the nfl and say come on, man!

4:22am
or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. don't take celebrex if you have bleeding in the stomach or intestine, or had an asthma attack, hives, other allergies to aspirin, nsaids or sulfonamides. get help right away if you have swelling of the face or throat, or trouble breathing. tell your doctor your medical history. and ask your doctor about celebrex. for a body in motion. that's the sound of car insunce companies these days. here a cheap, there a cheap. everywhere a cheap... you get it. so what if instead ofjust a cheachoice, you could make a smart choice? like esurance for example they were born online and built to save people money

problems are blamed for the lower than expected enrollment numbers. but now we're hearing that a third of people who think they successfully signed up for coverage at healthcare.gov may be mistaken. that's according to a report in the "washington post." that's not good because insurance companies might not even know where to send a bill. >> can you imagine, you think you've signed up. you go to get coverage 'cause you need health care. you go there and you find out that, in fact, you haven't been signed up. that is a huge issue because what does someone do at that point? >> reporter: over the weekend, the administration announced the new and improved healthcare.gov can handle 50,000 consumers at once. but yesterday only 30,000 made it in before the system put everyone else in their new digital waiting room, basically tell ming them to come back later. then there was this, a screen of characters that popped up after just clicking apply now for

5:04am
when it's safe to go on. when did you get the message and when did you get e-mailed it's safe to go on? >> reporter: the first time that i entered my e-mail address -- basically there is a i thing that says you can skip the wait. they'll send awe note when it's safe to come back. i sent it at 11:40 yesterday morning and i got a response back it was safe to return to healthcare.gov at 5:00 o'clock on the dot. >> all right. thank you very much. which is very convenient because the average eastern, if they're work at work on that, i can't do it right now 'cause i got to go home. >> right. got to commute. >> that's right. peter, thank you. all right. so we heard now apparently they don't have so many error messages, but instead, they're putting you in queues. plus there is news today that apparently one third of the people who think they are signed up are not actually signed up, peter johnson, jr. >> how is the president going to spin this, elisabeth and steve, is your obamacare enrollment

5:08am
care act today if the president had not simply flat out not told the truth? chris christie says, mr. president, time to fess up. >> what the president should do is to belly up to the bar and just tell the truth. the american people are fairly forgiving lot. if he got it wrong, he got it wrong of the but what they don't like is when they think you're dodging it and i think that's what the president looks like right now is that he's dodging it. >> kind of does look like that. just one other headline that we should tell you. in addition to the fact that a third of the people who think they've signed up are not really signed up is the big story this morning on the internet says that no security was ever built into the affordable care act site. so if you go on today, these so-called white hat hackers say your personal information could be in peril. good luck. >> understandable why so many are feeling not assured when it comes to the insurance web site.

5:17am
back on behalf of those kids' plight. she's republican representative from south dakota, congresswoman kristy nome. welcome. >> hi. thanks for having me. >> south dakota was actually highest in terms of childhood obesity. i know there have been solutions put forward. what are the current regulations that are so bad and have all the kids up in arms about it? >> the kids really are upset about this. the problem is that when these laws went into place, it was voted on before i got to congress -- that the first people who complained about it were the kids. we all want our kids to eat healthier. but the limitations capped their calorie, protein, grains. made it very difficult for kids to get full. i've got some of the poorest kids in the country as well. and many times this is the only meal they're getting a day. they're leaving school hungry. that's just so tragic for the people who are responsible for feeding these kids at the local level. >> we have some of those to take a look at. the grains had to be whole grains as it stands right now.
5:18am
all the milk has to be low fat. and there is a caloric requirement and it's set by age. to your point, some kids need more. it seems like a one size fits all plan. you suggest that instead of having it so overly regulated and stamped, that there be some flexibility. what would your bill propose? >> absolutely. i don't think that every child in this country is the same. the kids in south dakota are different than the kids in new york city and the athletes require a little bit different than younger kids do. i'm a mom and i've got kids that are in athletics and busy and so i just don't think that washington, d.c. bureaucrats should make those decisions. i think that the people that are closest to our kids that feed them every day, that take that responsibility very seriously the ones who should get to make these decisions. that's what my bill does. gives them flexibility. so many schools are struggling with the cost of the new laws and regulations. i want to give them a little bit of a chance to make some adjustment so their budgets aren't so out of whack. >> is it that the food isn't enough or the kids aren't choose
5:19am
to go eat the food put in front of them? >> i think it's both. when you look at the fact that we're only allowing kids to have two ounces of meat at a meal, that's just not enough. two ounces of grains is not enough. the calorie requirements could work for some kids. if we allowed them the flexibility to put stuff on their plate every day that gave them energy, that kept them going throughout the day. some kids might require more. that's where can i think it's crazy that we allow washington, d.c. to make these decisions and don't allow the people that are standing there with those kids every day and really know what kind of needs that they have. this is typical washington, d.c. bureaucracy. that's why we have to fix it and that's why i brought this bill. i didn't just hear from kids. i heard from parents. i heard from administrators, school nutritionists. people that recognize this doesn't work. we want kids to be healthy and full as well. >> sure. moms alike sure feel the same way. thank you for joining us today and good luck with the bill proposal. >> thank you so much. have a great day.

5:47am

jose is nearly $200,000. a great deal of that is spent on retirement benefits. so the average salary, top step salary is around $100,000. we're paying nearly as much for benefits as we are for base salary. and of course, those benefits are continuing to go up. they will go up this year and they're going to go up next year and our act uaries say they'll go up for another decade. >> we understand -- i was reading this to our friends at home, california lawmakers are going to get a more than 5% raise in your state. is there a disconnect in the state of california between the financial realities and what people think they can get away with? >> i think the disconnect is between the current status where people can get raises while we ignore really huge unfunded liabilities at the state level, for example, our california teachers retirement system, the
5:49am
state of california shorts that system by at least $4 billion every year and that's contributing to the bottom line of the state. but it's taking money away from our teachers. one of the things we need to do is to fix that. not just teachers, but all pension plans around the state need to be fully funded. we want to make sure our employees get paid what they've earned and we also want to provide services to our residents and taxpayers. >> mayor reed, i think you're summing it up well. we've got to go out the door now because of time constraint. we thank you for bringing light to this kind of courageous and far-sighted approach. keep us up to date, would you please, as it goes forward? >> i will. thank you. >> be well. 11 months out of the year, their mission is serve and protect our freedom. this month it's all about helping the kids. how you, too, can join marines to help toys for tots. but first, let's check in with my friend bill hemmer. good morning. >> peter, nice to see you.
